I . . . am one dedicated Slob Blogger.
First of all, I post an end-of-a-long-day, when-did-my-roots-get-that-bad picture for all the world to see just to prove that I did my Daily Checklist as promised.
On a Friday.
Like, I was gone all day doing Christmas shopping, and would have felt completely justified not doing my
But noooo, I said that I would do it Daily in December and today is December second and I’m not quite ready to fail.
Besides . . . I do believe my brilliant plan was to purposely challenge myself during this month that is generally full of wonderful, totally legit excuses.
Since I left to go shopping pretty much right after I did the school drop off this morning, I emptied the dishwasher this afternoon. This FRIDAY afternoon. Then I cleaned the kitchen, and led a joyous group of three children in doing a five-minute pick-up.
Then . . . (get this) . . . I swept the kitchen and closed cabinet doors and checked bathrooms for clutter and wiped down bathrooms . . . ON A FRIDAY NIGHT!!!
Wow. I’m committed.
How did your day go? Was your attitude better than mine? (Not too terribly hard!)
Wow. So now that we’re all Christmas-ey around here . . . come join in this Christmas link-up. Because . . . really . . . that’s what this is all about, right? Making a great home that’s inviting and warm and where we have counter space to cook, and cleared tables to do crafts.

Well for me the 2nd was nearly a bust. I did work a 12 hour shift at the hospital. So when I got home o only did the getting the kids to bed and feeding myself some supper. I didn’t even empty the dishwasher 🙁 But I did get all of the tubs that held all of our decorations back up in the attic………err…..ok, maybe I got them to the garage and hubby carried them up to the attic 🙂
It’s okay, Amanda! Tomorrow’s a new day, and putting up the decorations is a BIG DEAL!!!
OH NONY!!! This picture made me laugh. You look almost MAD about that darn checklist….. P.S. ALMOST DONE (as in caught up to your real life blogging- lol)
